About Dixon Hall:

Dixon Hall, incorporated in 1929, is a community-based organization serving clients throughout Toronto but focusing on people that live in the eastern downtown regions of Regent Park, Moss Park, Cabbagetown and St. James Town. Dixon Hall has several focuses: to provide at-risk youth with constructive activities to prevent them from falling into gang culture, to help disadvantaged youth grow and develop through enriching experiences, to help isolated seniors gain companionship and support that allows them to stay in their own homes, to help the homeless by providing shelter, food, and employment supports, and to help people looking for work by providing literacy, computer, and employability skills training.

Dixon Hall operates two shelters as well as managing the Out of the Cold program, working with 17 emergency shelters across Toronto during the coldest months. Seniors programs include Meals on Wheels, rides to medical appointments, social and recreational programs, an Alzheimer day program, and caregiver relief. Its Employment Services Centre helps nearly 1,500 people train for or find work each year. Neighbourhood Services include community development, settlement services, and income tax clinics. Programs for children and youth include mentorship, supporting girls and young women, supporting at-risk and vulnerable youth, leadership and community events, youth entrepreneurship, and camps. Dixon Hall also offers a music school for 300 students a week offering 20 different music subject areas.

In 2014 Dixon Hall merged with Mid-Toronto Community Services to become Dixon Hall Neighbourhood Services, increasing the services offered to seniors and adults living with disability or illness.
